Measurement Techniques for Combustion, Aerothermodynamics and Thermo-structures<img alt="" src="" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /> Techniques for Combustion, Aerothermodynamics and Thermo-structuresMeasurement Techniques for Combustion, Aerothermodynamics and Thermo-structures<h3>Mission:</h3><p>The laboratory, in the use of standard measurement techniques and development of novel techniques, collects and puts together expertise and activities, past/present, and to be developed at CIRA getting in synergy Research Centres and Universities (Italian and Foreign) of different backgrounds for a single purpose: Innovative and Leading Research for Aerospace applications.</p><h3>Goals:</h3><p>The laboratory target is to provide the basis of the theoretical and experimental novel and standard methodologies concerning the measurement application problems, the diagnostic and theoretical-experimental characterizations that are typical of the aerospace reetry (terrestrial and extraterrestrial - in the field of thermodinamic, aerothermodynamic and combustion) and the need to qualify and measure on large ground laboratories for the development of modern aerospace technologies.</p><h3>Research Topics:</h3><p></p><p>Novel (Nuclear, Optical, Spectroscopic, Thermographic) methodological diagnostic for the aerospace applications for the characterizations of Gas and Materials, and for the study, analysis and verification of physical and chemical models. In particular, we deepen into the following novel topics:</p><ul><li><p>Ion beam Analysis and Nuclear Techniques (Radioactive Ion (7Be) - gamma emitters) for the material recession rate determination and components of large facility.</p></li><li><p>Spectroscopic techniques (Spontaneous Emission (Visible and Ultraviolet), Laser Induced emission (LIF)) for the measurement of temperatures and concentrations of atomic and molecular gaseous species.</p></li><li><p>Diagnostic techniques for Thermal imaging (Dual Color), released by the emissivity materials knowledge.</p></li></ul><p style="text-align:justify;">For Laboratory testing uses two large equipments such as SCIROCCO and Ghibli plasma wind tunnels, where extreme conditions occurring in the re-entry phase of hypersonic flight are simulated. This lets validate the novel techniques methods and to develop the most advanced research systems.</p><p> </p><div><br></div>
